The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins Images

How It All Goes Down

Black and White and Red All Over
Notice how Bartholomew's hat seems all the more otherworldly and valuable when contrasted with the black meh of Didd.


Old School
Your eyes are drawn straight to Bartholomew with this illustration due to his hat's color and position on the page. The magicians become less characters and more of a background, but they do the job well.


Lone Fading Tree
Sounds like the name of an indie rock band, but we're actually talking about a lone tree. Check out how the tree's faded look and lack of a definite outline gives the picture a sketchy quality.


Galleria
A whole slew of Cubbins illustrations from the record's cover.


In Not-So-Technicolor
Blues? Greens?! Oh my! The newer version of The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins gets a color update, but does the addition of color change the story? We'll leave that for you to decide.
